I abruptly quit my job a few weeks ago due to some drama and my general unhappiness with the place. I scrambled around for a few weeks, but then managed to set myself up with a good position at another hospital – one that appreciates my high skill level, treats me as an actual human being AND pays me what I’m worth. Imagine that!
But seriously, this new place pays like $10/hour more than my last job. Do the math on what kind of a raise I just got myself there.
So, what have I learned about my career recently?

I think I would like to take on a few extra shifts a month at the emergency clinic. It would help a whole lot.
1. Update resume to include current job.
2. Write a kick-ass cover letter.
3. Email both of these things to the clinic.
I’m still being really stubborn about moving. If I can’t live with a significant other, I’d like to live alone and I enjoy all the space here. Yeah, it’s expensive, but I’m not in a good enough mental state to be moving just yet. 20 months ago
I don’t want to move again, but now that I have to carry the entire rent on this apartment by myself, I might have to. I’d really rather not. I did a budget and figured out that I’d only need to come up with few hundred more a month to be able to stay here and still live comfortably. Now to figure out how I’m going to do that.
a) go for a promotion at work, which I’m going to do regardless
b) get a second, part-time job
c) start pet-sitting again 23 months ago
